The Greatest Expedition Rescue in History

Experience one of the most unexpected survival stories in modern history. Read the first-hand account of Sir Ernest Shackleton as he takes you through the grand trials and tribulations of being marooned in the Southern Ocean for nearly two years. His original plan was to trek across Antarctica, a feat that had yet to be achieved. The turn of events that should have ended in tragedy is worth reading time and again.

  • Annotated with a bonus biography of Ernest Shackleton
  • Illustrations included
  • Large Print Edition Available

Timed with the outbreak of World War I, this ill-fated expedition is something to behold. The original plan was to have two teams work their way across the frozen wastelands of Antarctica. That never came to fruition for either team. Then, after endless months stuck on ice floes, Shackleton and a rag-tag team set out in a small open boat across the open ocean in an attempt to save everyone. The unlikely end is something to behold.

“At midnight I was pacing the ice, listening to the grinding floe and to the groans and crashes that told of the death-agony of the Endurance, when I noticed suddenly a crack running across our floe right through the camp.”

The fate of Ernest Shackleton, the Endurance, and her crew have been studied for over a century. Shackleton’s exploits have been turned into movies. His leadership style has been adapted into training programs for major corporations.

Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) is one of the last, most lauded polar explorers from the Great Age of Exploration.
